Is this the first Claymore figure ever? I hope to amass an army of Claymore girls. Claymore girls sound like GIlmore Girls, but they are quite different of course.

Anyway, Megahouse is bringing us this 1/8 scaled 19 cm tall Clare. The somewhat cool part is that she comes with an interchangeable arm (Irene’s) and you can sheath her sword or have her strike a menacing pose. The figure will cost about 5500 yen and its release date is November 2007.

The face doesn’t look too similar to the anime, but I do rather like it. The shiny armour is a plus too. I should be getting this figure.

10k yen obviously. Chouun is my favourite Ikkitousen character. She’s voiced by the sultry Asakawa Yuu too, who’s also my favourite seiyuu. How coincidental.

While there’s been enough figurines of the other Ikkitousen girls like Kanu, Ryoumou, Ryofu, there has been no decent one of Chouun till now. Wait, we aren’t even sure if this one is really decent because it’s being released by Griffon Enterprises who like to con us with pretty promo pictures when the real product is nowhere as good.

One of my favourite games ever is Final Fantasy Tactics, which was recently given a makeover and released on the PSP. I bought a PSP just for this game and it didn’t disappoint.

Yup, I should be getting the FFT figures. I do realise they are kinda ugly and stupid fanboy-material Baltier is in the set, ousting more worthy members of the cast like Orlandu, Meliadoul and even the generics. They are basically trading figures though - small and unposeable. You can’t buy them online separately, but I expect stores like Latendo to carry a set.

For the longest time, Maxfactory have been whetting our appetites with news that they would be releasing a 1/8 scaled PVC figure of the downright sexiest woman in mecha anime history. Note when I mean sexy I mean the normal definition, not the sexy that you lolicons refer to 8 year olds as.

With her ex-vocation includes such skills as stripping, pole-dancing and pleasuring men, Fasalina even manages to seduce the Kira Yamato-spoof in Gun x Sword. This figure attempts to capture the overflowing sex appeal of Fasalina but somehow I think there’s something not quite right.

You read that right, it’s Gurren-Lagann’s Yoko!! My god, these guys are bloody fast aren’t they? Konami is releasing a 20 cm tall 1/8 PVC figure of Yoko and her anti-materiel rifle and it’s set for a September 27th release for the mad price of 5775 yen. Note the trend, figures are getting immensely expensive. None of those featured today are below 5000 yen.

The pose is good, the face is accurate, the sculpt is meaty and rounded like the anime character is… looks like everyone’ll want this figure.
